The global terrain awareness and warning systems (TAWS) market size is slated to garner momentum over the projected timeline 2021-2028 led by the heightened demand for aircraft security and the rise in adoption of terrain profile matching (TERPROM) among fighter aircraft. Fortune Business Insights™ provides this information in the upcoming report titled, “Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) Market, 2021-2028.” As per the report, the overall market share is anticipated to expand at a notable CAGR in the forthcoming years.

COVID-19 Impact: Disruptions in Aerospace Sector and Halted Aircraft Production Have Affected TAWS adoption

The dreaded COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the aviation sector has directly affected the demand and adoption of TAWS worldwide. Due to strict lockdown restrictions, workforce shortages, and supply chain uncertainty, several major aircraft makers had temporarily halted aircraft production. In April 2020, for instance, aerospace giants Airbus and Boeing had temporarily suspended aircraft production in light of the worsening COVID-19 situation. On account of these factors, terrain awareness and warning systems (TAWS) adoption has declined significantly.

Drivers & Restraints-

Need for Commercial and Military Aircraft Safety to Augment TAWS Adoption  

TAWS has emerged as a promising technology for providing alerts and warnings to the aircraft pilot in advance. It is deployed to make the necessary data corrections and maneuvers for terrain avoidance. Terrain awareness and warning systems (TAWS) technology predicts a potential overlap between the aircraft’s flight path and the terrain via aircraft inputs such as flight plan, airspeed, altitude, position, and glideslope. The use of this technology is expanding owing to the increased need for the safety of commercial and military aircraft.

Across the globe, increasing investments in advanced aircraft safety systems by the military & defense sector are being witnessed. Military aircraft fleet owners focus on implementing advanced terrain profile matching (TERPROM) systems in fighter aircraft to bolster safety. Therefore, the growing demand for accurate, safe, and reliable warning systems across the military & defense sector represents a tremendous opportunity for terrain awareness and warning systems (TAWS) companies worldwide.
